Elden Ring Runs Rings Around CoD

A series of tweets from Mat Piscatella relates a bunch of reporting from the NPD Group on game sales, noting that: "April 2022 consumer spending across video game hardware, content and accessories declined 8% when compared to a year ago, to $4.3 billion. Hardware gains were unable to offset declines in content and accessories spending." One particularly interesting tidbit is this tweet noting that besides being the bestselling game of the year so far, Elden Ring has sold more units over the last 12 months than Call of Duty: Vanguard:
US NPD PREMIUM GAMES - Elden Ring was the 2nd best-selling title of April 2022. Elden Ring remains the best-selling game of 2022 year-to-date and has surpassed Call of Duty: Vanguard to become the best-selling premium game of the trailing 12-month period ending April 2022.
